Erected 1958
Parcel Post Bank
September 1886 Samuel R. Bennion was
sent here to establish a banking institution
called the 'Ashley Co-op.' In 1903 the first
pioneer bank was opened for business. In 1916
W.H. Coltharp erected this building with Salt
Lake City brick. A full car load of brick was
used, each wrapped separately and sent
Parcel Post U.S. Mail to Watson, Utah by train.
From there they were hauled to Vernal by
freight wagon and teams. It is known as the
'Parcel Post Bank of the World,' with N.J.
Meagher, Sr. cashier, this bank has been a
great factor in the development of Uintah
Uintah County, Utah
